SAMe is a supplement formed in the body by an enzymatic reaction between adenosine-triphosphate (ATP) and methionine. It was discovered in 1952 in Italy and has been researched and manufactured there. SAMe works closely with folic acid and vitamin B-12 and functions as a methyl donor. This nutrient carries and donates methyl molecules necessary to facilitate the manufacture of DNA and brain neurotransmitters.* Tissue levels of SAMe are typically low in the elderly.
SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine), a compound native to the body, is a critical component of many biochemical reactions, including those that affect brain biochemistry and joint health. Numerous studies have indicated that SAMe can help to temporarily alleviate minor joint discomfort resulting from overexertion or stress. In addition, because SAMe is also necessary for the synthesis of neurotransmitters, it plays an important role in mood support. SAMe is enteric-coated, which makes it very well tolerated and protects it from degradation.*
